What inspires you?

What inspires you? I am often inspired by things I see every day--billboards, magazine ads, but especially clothing. The colors you see in clothing I often would never put together on my own. This card is inspired by a pair of my daughter's leggings. They are striped in the exact colors and pattern of this card. Once I had the BG piece done, then I wondered, "What the heck am I going to do with this?" So, I went on a quest for sketches. Here is what I found: Jen Del Muro's Sketch for You to Try. This is an older one, from Feb. 21. To tell you the truth, this card is fairly far out of my comfort zone--not sure if I really like it or not. Maybe sometimes what's good for little girls' leggings is not so good for cards? Anyway, CS is all PTI except for the green (SU's retired Wild Wasabi--I could have used PTI's New Leaf if I'd had it, but at the time, my order had not yet arrived.), Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate, Lavender Moon, Raspberry Fizz. Ink is PTI's Rasp. Fizz and SU's White Craft. Ribbon is retired SU Wild Wasabi. Label is made from Spellbinder's die. Sets are Women of Life and Borders and Corners Hearts. And of course, would any card be complete without my fave CB folder, Birds and Swirls? Scallop border punch is SU. Thanks for stopping by!
